Evaluators’ Comments

  • “This material is unlike other dams. It has the best qualities of latex and non-latex and can be stretched significantly without tearing.”
  • “They are simply wonderful! We had NO tears even when the hole punched was jagged, when flossing it through the contacts, or upon removal.”
  • The color of the dam is perfect – especially for shade analysis, selection or re-establishing it when restoring.”
  • “Not as stretchy as my current rubber dam—but it’s just different, not worse.”
  • “It did not retract the lips and buccal mucosal tissues as well as my latex dam.”

Indication
